Don't Be Afraid lyrics

The gangs, these tests
These leather blue chucks, we some chills ass niggas
All you gots to show is love
I used to be afraid of falling deep for a man
'Cause my homies always said these fuckers just fans
My nigga, I told 'em I ain't scared of no obstacle
You live to die and die to live, that shit is all optional
Listen, you either with it or you isn't
Fuck with my family, I ain't scared to go to prison

Don't be afraid
All my niggas living by the law
You scared of something nigga
Why you tucking under covers for
I'm a problem to this game so they want me out
Just a wanted boy you entering the haunted house
Don't be afraid
Nigga don't fear it just respect it
A head to the lesson nigga
Don't be afraid
Y'all niggas scared of a gunner
My arm told fear damn for a fuck
Everything it run

7 47 on a wakeup
Lil mama got makeup all over my spreads
Kick her our then she hop in her benz
Feeling satisfied, usually she put up a fuss
But I didn't analyze, funny
Phone ring is prolly the money though
Lacing up the all white ones with the gummy soft
Check the mirror before I enter the earth
One thought when I'm hitting the turf

Don't be afraid
All my niggas living by the law
You scared of something nigga
Why you tucking under covers for
I'm a problem to this game so they want me out
Just a wanted boy you entering the haunted house
Don't be afraid
Nigga don't fear it just respect it
A head to the lesson nigga
Don't be afraid
Y'all niggas scared of a gunner
My arm told fear damn for a fuck
Everything it run

Nikey sweats and Jordan tools
Don't mind me, I'm just setting the scene
I'm ballot by the way I done my share
Of interest the things this life I was guilt
Some of the illest verses in these streets the valey was filled
Never turn from my position my mission was clear
To stand down like a man of whatever severed my fear
Watch me, king of my castle, call your dogs
I'm black superman above the law

Don't be afraid
All my niggas living by the law
You scared of something nigga
Why you tucking under covers for
I'm a problem to this game so they want me out
Just a wanted boy you entering the haunted house
Don't be afraid
Nigga don't fear it just respect it
A head to the lesson nigga
Don't be afraid
Y'all niggas scared of a gunner
My arm told fear damn for a fuck
Everything it run

Huh, you see your enemy riding by
And you realize you ain't got 9 lives
Don't be afraid
Pussy, hold, whole school player, I am beyond rookie
Schooling every day, no hookie
What? 50k upon it, the black hoodie, no floss
Sucker shit I ain't buying at no cost
Got 5 kids, I'ma put them all imagine
Drop here, time live, drop this

Don't be afraid
All my niggas living by the law
You scared of something nigga
Why you tucking under covers for
I'm a problem to this game so they want me out
Just a wanted boy you entering the haunted house
Don't be afraid
Nigga don't fear it just respect it
A head to the lesson nigga
Don't be afraid
Y'all niggas scared of a gunner
My arm told fear damn for a fuck
Everything it run

I used to be fear for a Chucky and Freddie
I'm the daughter they fall for, like white chicks rick james and the couch shit
I sleep with machetes, always ready
Mama said fear no man like Eddie
From he's the moon to run like Kunti
You fear for eyes tearful shed one
Cry me a river to drown you, I fear none
Boogie man tap dance on my tongue
Boo nigga, I fear for your career,
You niggas ain't cool with us, huh

Don't be afraid
All my niggas living by the law
You scared of something nigga
Why you tucking under covers for
I'm a problem to this game so they want me out
Just a wanted boy you entering the haunted house
Don't be afraid
Nigga don't fear it just respect it
A head to the lesson nigga
Don't be afraid
Y'all niggas scared of a gunner
My arm told fear damn for a fuck
Everything it run

Back to back wine toast
Yesterday I went to sleep to fuck the fine ghost
In and out my mind most
Lee got me in the middle while rhyming my business
Rap gods please forgive us all of the sinners
Still get a verse full of venom off
Sacred as the synagogue, diamond lay ??? men at war
I have a harder time with taxes
Knocking the earth off its axes

Don't be afraid
All my niggas living by the law
You scared of something nigga
Why you tucking under covers for
I'm a problem to this game so they want me out
Just a wanted boy you entering the haunted house
Don't be afraid
Nigga don't fear it just respect it
A head to the lesson nigga
Don't be afraid
Y'all niggas scared of a gunner
My arm told fear damn for a fuck
Everything it run
